Re: Volition: Secret Project X
Yes, it was EndWar that used voice commands, and the system was nearly flawless. It did simple things perfectly, and would work very well for Freespace, but for movement locations other than pre-designated points you needed to point and click.

Still, not exactly a problem here. On a side note, look what happens when :v: announces a new project, and here we are discussing ways to improve FS3. I just think its a little premature, but I also hope for an ending to the story one day.

Then again, that situation includes C&C (crap)4. . . .

Re: Volition: Secret Project X
Honestly? I think I'd rather have a Saint's Row 3 with a competent PC port and RFG's geomod than Freespace 3.

Get an attack helicopter, take out an overpass. Or a skyscraper (hmm. Might be too iffy. Then again, committing terrorist acts didn't hurt MW2's bottom line, and SR is way more out there than MW). Or the police HQ. Or whatever.
I will ask that you explain yourself. Please do so with the clear understanding that I may decide I am angry enough to destroy all of you and raze this sickening mausoleum of fraud down to the naked rock it stands on.

Really, we already know SR3 is coming out. FS3 would be much better, because it would be more of a surprise than SR3. Plus, the community would expand with new players, content, and more multiplayer. Heck, I'd rather be anything besides SR3 really

Rainbow Six uses something similar, holding down some of the buttons on the controller brings up a pie menu.

The word 'Yo' is only ever to be used as a singular greeting.
It is considered an insult to destroy a perfectly acceptable greeting by misuse. A 'Yo-Yo' is a toy spun from the index finger by small children and enthusiasts,
any such use as a greeting will result in prompt reprimand by any member of the 'African-American' or 'Sri-Lankans-who-think-they're-black' community

Re: Volition: Secret Project X
Would Freespace 3 continue the level of moddability? If it's a new engine I mean. I know red faction 1 had a tool called Red  which was a cross between Fred and UnrealED in it's execution. I haven't had a chance to get my hands on Red Faction 3 yet. But if it has the the same mod tools shipped with it. I'd hope any potential freespace continuation would follow the same trend.
 
 
Plus added lazzorrs a kill cam and the ability to carjack.

I doubt FS3 would be moddable. At all. Which is why I don't want it to come out and steamroll us.

But then perhaps someone will port the story and models to be played in FSO, and then we'll win.

Re: Volition: Secret Project X
At this point I think the community is self-sufficient enough that a console-oriented and probably unmoddable sequel is unlikely to wound it.

Re: Volition: Secret Project X
It would have to be a reboot anyway.

They'd probably just condense the story into one 5 hour game.

That's a strange assumption. None of Volition's recent games have been short by any means.

Oh come on, RF:G was released for a console, and it is too moddable if I remember correctly. It has no level creater, I think.

Re: Volition: Secret Project X
Given what they've seen this community accomplish, I don't think there's any way :v: would release a PC version of a theoretical FS3 without including the requisite modding tools.

It's not like FS2 would melt if FS3 were to be released. I'd rather have a completed story and have to do modding on FS2 than not have a completed story and still have to do modding on FS2.

The entertainment industry isn't exactly a friendly one. If something doesn't make money there is no reason why it should be done.

What's even worse is that if you think about it many recent titles have been made mainly for console, with PC as merely an afterthought. Most PC renditions of games nowadays are usually slapped together ports of their console versions.

We already have numerous completed stories - The ones the community makes. Sure they're not canon but look at it this way, the completed storyline can be anything you want.


My point is, if FS3 comes out and it's good then it'd be a good thing If FS3 comes out and it's bad, well ****. Not exactly the end of the world **** but certainly ****.

I'd like to have an FS3. The FS2 lead writer is still at Volition, which gives me confidence it would have a truly awesome story.

And this is certainly true of Volition's titles; **** you some more, Saints Row PC port!

I dunno. The writing in SR2 is agreeably silly and certainly entertaining, but RF:G's writing? Dull.

I mean, I want them to make a FS3, hell yes. I'm just not sure they've done such a great job with story in, well, any game other than FS2.
